“I began being treated for chronic joint pain in my fingers, wrist, elbows, and knees. Dr. Xu ordered up blood and stool test in an effort to determine why my body had so much inflammation daily. Once she got my test results she put me on a daily routine of vitamins and supplements. Incredibly after 4 Weeks, my symptoms started to lessen and now after about 10 weeks of taking the recipe she prescribed, I am all but done with the daily pain I have endured for years. Conventional Arthritis Dr.’s DID NOT EVEN scratch the surface of getting my health back. I now have an incredible quality of life that I have not had for years. Thank you so much Dr. Xu for caring enough to figure out why I had so much body inflammation and more importantly give me my life back. Every day now is a great one. I can hike, bike, and do the things I enjoy doing.

“Dr. Xu at Palm Springs Life Extension has been a great help in treating my GERD ( acid reflux ) since August 2019. The nutritional supplements I have taken to re-balance my gut and get my stomach acid & flora back to a healthy state over the last few months has worked wonders. One of the beneficial side effects is the nasal polyps I have been monitoring with Desert ENT for years have completely dissolved!

“I went back to Palm Springs Life Extension to get a second PRP facial by Dr. Monica.  It’s also known as the vampire facial.  I have a high-intensity makeup mirror in my bathroom and I would get depressed looking at all the little scars I’ve accumulated over my almost 60 years. After three weeks, these scars have gone away!  My skin looks amazing! Dr. Monica is so nice. She walked me through the process and explained everything! She was excellent.

“After Suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure for 10 years, I was having problems with arousing and stimulating foreplay, and coitus was becoming more and more difficult. The use of Viagra and Cialis was minimal effective during this time period. After seeing her on TV my wife and I decided that I should give it a try. After several weeks of treatments and also starting the testosterone therapy, we noticed a dramatic increase in stimulation, arousal, and firmness and a more complete and effective ejaculation response. At this time my wife and I are very happy with the results and we look forward to a satisfying continuation of our married life.

“I am approaching 60 years old and as we know at that age 60% of men can experience E.D.I also am a two-time cancer survivor in which I have both testicles removed and through the years have done some damage in that area as well and have some Peyronie’s disease. So, I have the trifecta so to speak. At my age, most men’s testosterone drops, but with my cancer surgeries I cannot make testosterone anymore and I have to administer cream now, but still feel my libido has diminished along with amounts of erections and hardness. I researched on the internet various things that seemed like scams and came across Gainswave. The testimonies, a lot like this one really made me believe that the procedure could work. I was still skeptical when I wrote and called the Life Extension Institute in Palm Springs, which is the only place that actually has Gainswave in the whole Coachella Valley. I made an appointment and though still skeptical went and met with Dr. Monica Xu, who is a Naturopath. I was impressed with her knowledge of the human anatomy and very simple way she explains the procedure of Gainswave, which I knew a little about from watching some informative videos online. I signed up for the procedure and with such a delicate subject to approach that can be embarrassing for men of all ages, I was amazed how professional and courteous the staff was and how they made you feel relaxed and at home. After my first session I must say that I felt that I might have more blood flow in that area and after six sessions, I definitely could tell a difference in my erections, sensitivity and my Peyronie’s disease dissipating. I now feel more confident in this area of my life, which is a huge stress relief and am very thankful for Dr. Xu, the Life Extension Institute and the amazing Gainswave procedure they administer.

“As a patient with high blood pressure and taking multiple medications, I was pleased that the GainsWave treatment was successful in improving my erections as well as my sexual performance and satisfaction.  For patients with heart issues, I recommend GainsWave as a potential solution to their ED problems.  Thank you.

  • “..I had issues with missed and late periods (which later diagnosed as PCOS) ; Dr. Monica helped me by getting my period perfectly on track within 3 months from my first visit. She also made a clear picture of the short and long term goal in her approach to get my hacky hormones in balance. I believe she is not afraid to take different approaches to help any issues that may arise along the way and with patience, there will be a greater chance to see amazing results!
  • My experience with Dr. Monica has been a great one that I will never forget. 
  • Thank you Dr. Monica! I will continue with the tinctures and supplements!

“… I was feeling very unwell, Dr. Monica helped me by doing some tests and we found out what the problem was and how it was affecting me, I have a very bad bacteria in my intestines that I had no idea about, she got me on to numerous supplements and I’m finally starting to feel so much better, the one thing I liked was how caring she was even when I was emailing her out of work hours she took the time to email me back about concerns I had in how I was feeling etc I found the experience very good very helpful and I would recommend Monica to anyone who unsure with why they’re feeling well.

“I went to see Dr. MONICA XU in the summer of 2017. I had a terrible problem with my hair falling out.

Dr. Monica was so kind and understanding.  She never tried to overprescribe. She was knowledgeable and always professional. I feel wonderful and my hair loss has stopped completely and my hair is regrowing wonderfully.

I would thoroughly recommend MONICA XU to anyone seeking an extremely knowledgeable naturopath – who also cares and understands!
